Over these past few months, I’ve found myself looking for the oldest, most rundown looking buildings in town. I would love to purchase one of these buildings and restore it to it’s original beauty. At the same time I love that I can see where stairs and whole floors used to exist on the side of a building- so much character, so much history.
Each of these pictures were taken on the same street all within 11 city blocks. The unique thing about Salt Lake City is the amazing contrast between the old and the new. There are the remodeled, renovated, cutting edge and traditional all mixed in with the crumbledown of yesterday.
I had a lot of fun stopping off at the side of the road and doing a little exploring. It’s my town- has been all my life, but there are so many nooks and crannies that I’ve never even seen before. I’m very interested in the little details, the things that people forget over time. Next on my list is finding the stories behind all of these buildings- that’s what brings them to life again.Related Post: Building History
